Starr's Savory Meatballs

Recipe by  

"This is my version of meatballs based on experimentation from several different recipes, including my mother's. I like to use these in spaghetti sauce, of course, but they're also delicious in my meatball subs. You can double or triple the recipe - sky's the limit! - and freeze."

Out of dry bread crumbs at the moment, I used crushed garlic croutons instead. I made no other changes. GREAT meatballs. Excellent for meatball sandwiches.

These were so good. I forgot to put the bread crumbs in. They were still really good, but fell apart when we reheated them. Also made them much smaller

Fabulous as is!! I did make my meatballs bite size since that is how my family likes them. At that size, I only cooked them 6 minutes and that seemed about right (less or more depending on if you like to see a little red or if you like crispy mearballs). Thanks for a great recipe, my new "go to" recipe!

I made these for a Christmas party and they were delicious! I added a half pound of sausage because I had some to use up. These will be my go-to homemade meatball from now on! Thanks Superstarr!

These were great and EASY! I took others' suggestions and made mini meatballs about 1 1/2 inch diameter. They were awesome and baked at 425 for 15 minutes (hot oven). Thanks, Starr, these are ex-L-ent!

Starr's Savory Meatballs Haiku: "These were pretty good! Ate them with spaghetti squash. (I made mine smaller.)" I followed the recipe exactly as written, only making my meatballs smaller than indicated in the directions (bout ping-pong ball size.) Tried them right from the oven (tasty, but not mind-blowing - a good, basic meatball), then let them simmer in sauce for a little while b4 serving over a spaghetti squash. The whole family declared them wonderful, so we gotta give props to Starr for her easy meatball recipe.

I thought these were pretty good. I followed the recipe, I just used 93% lean beef and cut the black pepper amount in half. They were a little on the herby side, but I can see them working with a tomato or a beef sauce. They were huge, compared to what I expected. They were about 3" and after cooking were still about 2 1/2" sized meatballs. Mine needed to cook 35 min. be flipped and then have another 20 minutes more. I cut the onion kind of small, worried they wouldn't cook in time, but with the extra minutes that helped. They were good with best marinara sauce yet. I plan to try them with a gravy to. 2 are filling to me, especially if eaten with something else.
